"Bay has delivered a leaner, meaner, cleaner 3-D rage against the machines."

"The picture wears its ambitions on its whirring, rumbling, clanking, heavily CGI'd sleeve, and it pretends to be nothing more than it is: a honking, 40-karat piece of entertainment..."
Total Film - 09/01/2011 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he clever hook provides a secure foundation for Bay's customary bombast..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/08/2011
"[H]ere Bay makes his best, most flexible use yet of all the flamboyant bigness at his command: Computer-drawn characters and human actors seem to occupy the same narrative for once."
The interstellar war between the Autobots and Decepticons shifts into overdrive following the discovery of Sentinel Prime (voice of Leonard Nimoy) in this sequel from director Michael Bay. Only a precious handful of officials in the government and military realize that the 1969 moon mission was the result of an event that threatened profound repercussions for the entire human race. When the Apollo 11 astronauts discover the wrecked remains of Sentinel Prime on the surface of our natural satellite, they bring him back to planet Earth. But Sentinel Prime wasn't the only alien object on the moon, and when a malevolent new enemy makes its presence known, only the Autobots can save humankind from certain destruction.
